Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A cool slice of European minimalist drama."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Rock solid visual assurance carries the day in this tale of few words."
‑ Lisa Nesselson, Variety
"Of all the modes of modern alienation, there is none so persistent and arbitrary as finding oneself trapped in a glacially paced European art film."
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"The performances from her actors are tops, but what steals the show is Leopold's mastery of her visual language, dominated by Richard van Oosterhout's sumptuous widescreen lensing."
‑ Boyd van Hoeij, european-films.net
"...it's an oasis of visual gravity, firmly tripod-rooted to the ground and entirely free of handheld manipulations. Sharply acted under the restrictive circumstances, the film might be too preconceived for its own good..."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"Leopold skillfully and self-assuredly draws the audience in, using the sparse and understated timbre of classic French new wave."
‑ Les Wright, culturevulture.net
